to work while helping america gain the lead when it comes to clean energy. it's clear why such an effort is so important. building a robust clean energy sector is how we will create the jobs of the future, jobs that pay well, and can't be outsourced. but it's also how we will reduce our dangerous dependents on foreign oil, a dependents that endangers our economy and our security. and it is how we will combat the threat of climate change and leave our children a planet that's safer than the one we inherited. harnessing new forms of energy will be one of the defining challenges of the 21st century, and unfortunately right now, the united states, the nation that pioneered the use of clean energy, is being outpaced by nations around the world. it's china that has launched the largest effort in history to make their economy energy efficient. we spearheaded the development of solar technology, but we fallen behind countries, like germany and japan, in producing it. and in almost all of the batteries that we used to power our hybrid cars are manufactured in asia. though the steps like the one t

teacher america folks participate in teacher u. i'd like to just talk a little bit about how we approach this work. we have a textbook that we've developed that we use with our core members called teaching as leadership. we're releasing a version actually this month or early this month that we're hoping to sort of share that knowledge that we've accumulated by looking at our exceptional teachers more broadly and really just enter into a conversation with people in this sector about what we can do to better prepare and support teachers in general. and one of the things that we focus on that we found in our high performers is their ability to invest students in their work. and, you know, chubb says in his paper students begin lessons unmotivated, they will simply not make the hard effort necessary to learn. agreed. i mean, i couldn't agree more. but i'm not sure that technology will motivate students. i mean, and i'm not sure how you get students to engage in the technology if they have this past of not being successful and don't feel like they want to engage in the work and doubt their ow

and finally address the problems that america's families have had for years. we can't afford another so-called economic expansion like the one from the last decade. what some called the lost decade, where jobs grew more slowly than during any prior expansion, where the income of the average american household declined while the cost of health care and tuition reached record highs. where prosperity was built on the housing bubble and financial speculation. from the day i took office, i have been told that addressing our larger challenges is too ambitious. such an effort would be too contentious. i have been told that our political system is to gridlocked, that we should just put things on hold for a while. for those who make these claims i have one simple question. how long should we wait? how long should america put its future on hold? [applause] you see, washington has been telling us to wait for decades, even as the problems have grown worse. meanwhile, china is not waiting to revamp its economy. germany is not waiting. and yet is not waiting. these nations are not standing still. the
